Massage is a treatment which aims to relax, revive and heal the body. Using manual hands-on movements and manipulation of the soft tissues and muscles in the body, massage therapy works to promote healing and enhance a person’s overall well-being.

What Are the benefits?
One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing.
Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Some of the physical benefits of massage and myotherapy include:
- reduced muscle tension
- improved circulation
- reduction of stress hormones
- increased joint mobility and flexibility
- improved recovery of soft tissue injuries
- reduced anxiety and depression

“I am a regular gym goer and golfer and was struggling with a recurring knee problem so I contacted Balmoral Physio and was given an appointment with Mark Henderson. He identified the problem quickly as most likely a small tear in the cartilage. Without a scan it would be impossible to be 100% certain so I was treated on that basis. After two sessions of manual therapy and some home exercises the pain has disappeared and I am so far able to resume my sporting activities without further symptoms. I was very happy with the knowledge and treatment I received and would not hesitate to recommend this practice.”Phil HerdmanGosforth client
“I have had chronic back pain for many years. And have seen a variety of health professionals. I found Ross to be one of the best I have ever seen. He was extremely knowledgeable, patient and ultimately very helpful.”JohnGosforth Client
“My neck gives me trouble most of the time, with only periodic moments of relief. Not only has he loosened my neck up but it's stayed loose! Thank you!”DougGateshead client
“Refreshing to be told that all I needed was to take away some exercises to aid flexibly. No hard sell to say I needed multiple visits. Well worth a visit.”Andrew BiggsGosforth Client
“I am very pleased with my experiences with the Physio service and I would recommend them to anyone. Your referral is processed very efficiently and you are seen quickly. I also like that you are given choices (unlike a lot of medical services!). The service is designed to work in cooperation with the client and I feel it will have better outcomes because of this.”LouiseBirmingham
